Returning back to the area where I grew up for the first time in 15 years with my Wife who'd never been there before from our home in central Queensland in Oz. We were looking for somewhere quite in comfortable in the heart of Riwaka from where we would take day trips ranging as far as Nelson to the east...

I have stayed in many many B&B's in my years of travel to over 20 countries and this place easily ranks in my top 3. John and Pauline were incredibly friendly hosts in a beautiful modern home.

We stayed in many places over our travels, and Tasman Bay B&B stood out far above the rest. The accommodation was great all round; nicely decorated, clean and homely, with the shared living space a nice addition. The breakfast was the best continental we've had, and the views from the front of the house were stunning. Pauline and John were...

We stayed as a group of 3 in 2 rooms (both with lovely en suites) in March. The hosts were charming, welcoming and very helpful in sorting out our stay and activities. Breakfast each morning was lovely. Highly recommended as a lovely place to stay near Abel Tasman.

Stayed with Pauline & John for two nights in February. Couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Gorgeous house & location. Excellent advice on boat trips along the Abel Tasman coastline resulting in one of my favourite days in NZ. Delicious breakfasts too.

Pauline and John are excellent hosts and their custom built bed and breakfast is a 'cut above the rest'. There is nothing that could be added to their beautiful home or to their understanding of their guests needs to make every stay here a Great Experience. So close to the beautiful Abel Tasman Park and overlooking the estuary, photo opportunities...
